The 50 Jersey City bars that matter, ranked worst to best
#2
Home away from home
Home away from home


By Jeremy Schneider | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
It's no stretch to consider Jersey City's burgeoning nightlife — part and parcel of an enormous economic resurgence throughout much of the city — as the most robust in all of New Jersey. There seems to be a scene for everyone, from the chic skyline-glancing bars and clubs along the sky-scraping waterfront, to the hipster-trendy spots down on Newark Avenue and around the Grove Street PATH station. And don't sleep on the local favorites in up-and-coming Heights and Greenville neighborhoods, either.

But which bar is the best? We spent more than a month sampling the Jersey City nightlife, hitting more than 50 bars in the process (with a few hangovers to prove it). We judged the bars on ambiance, decor, drinks, food, happy hour specials and more to crown the best bar in the city.

NOTE: Jersey City has more than 50 bars, but we had to cap it somewhere and made sure to hit all the favorites. Did we miss your favorite bar? Who did we overrate or underrate? Let us know in the comment section.

JERSEY CITY -- City officials broke ground on a new affordable housing project that will include more than 200 units designated for low- and moderate-income residents.

On Friday, Mayor Steve Fulop and representatives from RPM Development Group broke ground at the Whitlock Cordage site, a six-and-a-half-acre site which includes five buildings under renovation along with 29 newly reconstructed buildings.

Where you start your career can have a lasting impact on your professional trajectory. Geography can impact your opportunities, earning potential and your ability to save money.

But just because a city offers amazing opportunities doesn't mean that it's the perfect fit for everyone or every young professional. Career services site Zippia combed through data from the American Community Survey as well as median income figures from the U.S. Census to find the best platform for young professionals.

A priest has stepped away from his Jersey City parish while the Newark archdiocese investigates a new allegation of decades-old abuse, a spokesman for the archdiocese said.

The Rev. Gerard Sudol, who faced similar accusations 15 years ago that were a part of a million-dollar settlement -- was a priest "in residence" at Our Lady of Czestochowa Downtown. He had been at the church since July 2015.

Jersey City is implementing a marijuana decriminalization policy that its mayor and new chief municipal prosecutor believe will increase racial justice while protecting public safety.

The policy, which is expected to begin officially tomorrow, will downgrade some marijuana charges to non-criminal offenses; encourage prosecutors to seek dismissal of low-level marijuana charges; and recommend diverting defendants with a criminal past and signs of addiction to the city's community court.

A 15-minute walk from New Jersey City University to Mallory Avenue is where three Jersey City natives' aspirations came to life.

Peter Jose, Lekendrick Shaw and Ivan Almonte held a grand opening on June 23 for their Jersey & Co. Gelato store at 55 Mallory Ave. The shop serves homemade gelatos, vegan sorbets, as well as cappuccinos and espressos.

"We wanted to offer an amenity that wasn't being offered in the area," Shaw, 26, said.

Gelato flavors include classic Italian tastes such as straciatella and pistachio, as well as unique combinations like kibana, a kiwi/banana blend, and p'chango, a peach/mango sorbet.

Jose and Shaw met at NJCU, where they were members of the Student Investment Management Group and analyzed the stock market. Shaw was an analyst while Jose was president of the group.

BUSINESS & ECONOMY
Jersey City set to move forward on 100-acre Bayfront development
BY David Cruz, Senior Correspondent | July 2, 2018, 5PM EST


At close to 100 acres, the Bayfront property, located in the city’s southwest Greenville section represents the most significant development opportunity in the city since the downtown boom began in the 80s and 90s. A once chromium-polluted brownfield, Bayfront is now clean and ready for redevelopment. With affordable housing at a premium, Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop has proposed buying the property — of which the city is already part owner — from Honeywell, the successor company that cleaned it up. Fulop thinks the development could feature up to 30 percent affordable units, but it won’t be cheap.

“Up to $105 million for the specific property, and then we’re going to go out for bonding of $105 [million] plus $80 [million] approximately for infrastructure, so it’s a big undertaking. It’s about $180 million,” said Fulop. “Our models project that, over some time, we’re going to be able to return that as an investment to the taxpayers, maybe make some money and get some inclusionary housing in there.”

But borrowing $180 million, government officials call it bonding, is no small step, and the city council held a hearing on the proposal late last month to gauge public support. Needless to say, opinions were expressed.

“I am opposed to the city of Jersey City floating bonds for the Bayfront project,” testified resident Christine Bamberger. “Jersey City should not enter into the banking business of floating bonds for real estate development regardless of how the plan is couched or the options are couched right now.”

Abundant Joy Community Church Pastor William Ashley, who was part of a group of citizens who pushed the city to buy the property, said its redevelopment was overdue.

“We recognize that the details are yet to be worked out. We recognize there are numerous questions that need to be asked and answered,” he said. “We stand with you in saying that this is a bold step. It’s game changer and there’s no place else in this state that has taken this bold initiative.”

Councilwoman Denise Ridley, who represents the Greenville section where the project would rise, says affordable housing is a good goal, but so-called workforce housing, the kind of housing working class professionals can afford, should be part of the mix.

“Workforce housing would be geared more toward everyday Greenville residents. It’s more feasible for people who might be police, fire, teachers,” she said. “Sometimes with the affordability portion of it, you lose a lot of people. We want to make sure that, yes, we want the affordable units, but we don’t want to lose those potential people that are here in Greenville. I think a lot of people hear affordable and they automatically assume that they’re going to qualify, and a lot of people will not.”

A proposed extension of the light rail across busy Route 440 is already in the works, with NJ Transit earmarking $5 million for an environmental impact study. That extension could double the number of units here to 8,000, an almost 20 percent population increase for Greenville.

The council has already given preliminary approval for the city to go get the money. The mayor says, if all goes well, you could see shovels in the ground by the end of next year.

Re: Plastic bag bans coming to Hoboken, Jersey City

Home away from home
Home away from home


By Michael Sol Warren mwarren@njadvancemedia.com,
NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

In the midst of Trenton's swirling budget debate, New Jersey drew one step closer to becoming the first state to impose state-wide fees on single-use plastic and paper bags.

On Thursday night, state lawmakers approved a five-cent fee for every bag handed out at chain supermarkets and retailers. The measure applies to both paper and plastic bags. The goal of the fees is to discourage the use of single-use plastic bags and push consumers towards reusable bags instead.

"Most stores have made the change and now provide more environmentally friendly bags for customers," said Assemblywoman Valerie Vainieri Huttle (D-Bergen), the sponsor of the Assembly bill. "This bill encourages more stores to get on board and move away from using the bags that are harmful to the environment."

The bill now heads to Gov. Phil Murphy's desk.

"Governor Murphy will carefully consider any legislation that aims to protect the environment in New Jersey," said Dan Bryan, a spokesman for the Governor.

RIVET is now leasing in GV

Home away from home


The Hampshire Cos. and Claremont Cos. are teaming on the development of RIVET, a 163-unit luxury apartment community in Jersey City, N.J.

“It’s a pretty strong value proposition not only in rents but square feet and space in general,” Richard Sciaretta, Claremont Cos.’ director, told MHN. “It’s 25,000 square feet of Class A amenity space, and on average looking towards downtown product in Jersey City, on a rental basis of a 20-30 percent discount and getting more space.”

The project, expected to be ready for occupancy in July, is just the first phase of a mixed-use master plan to transform Jersey City’s west end neighborhood into University Place.

http://rivetapts.com/floorplans//#type=1-bedroom&date=all

University Place is a master redevelopment plan which will encompass eight buildings, 1,000 new luxury residential units and access to more than 120,000 square feet of retail, a vibrant performing arts center, cafes, theaters and lush green space.

“We were attracted to this because it creates a sense of place in a neighborhood that is emerging,” Sciaretta said. “It was exciting to jump on board with a blank canvas and create a community where nothing of this nature, scale or quality has ever been built in this area.”

LUXURY LIVING
Located at 23 University Place Blvd., RIVET will consist of 27 studio apartments, 112 one- and 24 two-bedroom units, ranging from 550 to 1,300 square feet. Units feature 9’6” ceilings, contemporary kitchens with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, white cabinetry, and subway tile backsplashes.

Meanwhile, bathrooms boast large format porcelain floor tile, cultured marble vanity countertops, chrome faucets with sprayers, medicine cabinets, and tubs and showers outfitted with subway tile and glass mosaic accents.

The property will boast amenities such as a cyber café with Wi-Fi access, Butterfly MX virtual entry and package delivery system, an activated 15,000-square-foot courtyard with a sundeck, lounge seating, gaming areas, grilling stations and movie screenings, an indoor lounge with courtyard connectivity, plus a fitness center with Fitness On Demand and yoga studio.

RIVET will also include 10,000 square feet of retail space.

The property is situated just one-third of a mile from a Bergen Hudson Light Rail stop, providing access to the Hackensack River Waterfront and Hoboken as well as the opportunity to transfer to the PATH train for convenient access to New York City. It’s also close by a multitude of premier shopping, dining and entertainment options.

Additionally, 177 structured parking spaces, two bike terminals and street parking provide commuters with additional convenience.

JERSEY CITY – In a move that may well become the largest development in Jersey City since the 1980s, the City Council is slated to introduce a bond ordinance that would pay for the purchase of more than 90 acres along the Hackensack River.

The council has set a special meeting for June 20 at which it is expected to authorize the administration to purchase from Honeywell International the property that could result in the construction of 4,000 to 8,000 residential units along Route 440 on the Hackensack River.

Mayor Steven Fulop said that the City Council is set to adopt the most aggressive of three options concerning property that is current jointly owned by the city and Honeywell.

JC cop appears in 'The Daily Show' immigration segment
#22
Home away from home
Home away from home


By Caitlin Mota
The Jersey Journal

Officers from the Jersey City Police Department made an appearance on Thursday night's episode of The Daily Show with Trevor Noah to talk about how cops police immigrant communities.

The segment focused on how the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency is using local enforcement officers to crack down on undocumented immigrants through its 287(g) program.

Correspondent Roy Wood Jr. first meets with Fred Harran, the public safety director of Bensalem, Pennsylvania and a supporter of 287(g) because it puts undocumented immigrants "in jail" or "ships them out of (the United States)" if ICE decides to deport. Police departments that participate have access to federal immigration databases.

"It saves me sometimes hours of police time waiting around for ICE to get back to us," he said.

Wood then heads to Jersey City, a designated sanctuary city where police are barred from honoring immigration detainer requests and federal immigration authorities cannot enter city buildings without a warrant. There, he meets Public Safety Director Jim Shea who says undocumented immigrants are more often victims of crime than criminals themselves.

"Our goal when we assure people that we will not check their immigration status is a safer city for everybody, officers need witnesses, officers need victims to cooperate," Shea said.

Hudson County, though, had worked with federal authorities and 287(g) for years before ending the controversial partnership with ICE in March. The county jail was one of four in New Jersey to participate, which was scrutinized by residents and immigration advocates alike.

Officer Alberto Vasquez then brings Wood on a drive through the Greenville and West Side neighborhoods of the city. "Vasquez wasted the day making friends and being nice to citizens, not deporting people," Wood says facetiously.

Plans Revealed for 902 Brewing’s Full-Scale Brewery
#27
Home away from home
Home away from home


902 Brewing Company has come a long way from what was once a modest beer brewing experiment between two Hoboken roommates at the beginning of this decade, and now, plans are officially in place to house the entire business under one roof at a large Jersey City facility.

The brewery, officially formed in 2012 by Colby Janisch, Tucker Littleton, Andrew Brown, and Don Vogt, is named for the Washington Street building where Janisch and Littleton dabbled in the aforementioned brewing trials. They’ve been working their hoppy magic out of New Jersey Beer Company’s North Bergen facility since 2016 and announced plans to merge with that company that should wrap up within the next year.

902 Brewing has long desired to open a tap room, and at one point, had toyed with putting a small one in Hoboken. But like many residents of the Mile Square City, they moved west for more space and have now found a spot to land in Jersey City’s Bergen-Lafayette neighborhood.

What’s Inside Jersey City’s Unsuccessful Amazon HQ2 Proposal?
By Jared Kofsky - June 11, 20185


While Jersey City will not be home to Amazon’s second headquarters (HQ2), we now know what exactly was included in City Hall’s unsuccessful pitch to the company.

The process for selecting HQ2, which some have referred to as a PR stunt by the Seattle-based company, involved hundreds of cities and metropolitan areas all over North America submitting proposals last fall. In addition to Jersey City, the Garden State municipalities and counties that sent in applications to Amazon were Atlantic City, Bayonne, Camden County, New Brunswick, Newark, Trenton, and West Windsor, according to Quartz. However, only Newark, which had received the state’s endorsement, was selected by Amazon as one of the 20 finalists.

Through a public records request, Jersey Digs obtained Jersey City’s application, which offered six reasons why Amazon should select the state’s second-largest city. City Hall cited the potential for the company to insert itself into the New York skyline without paying Manhattan prices, stated that there is more than a million square feet of available space and over 20 million square feet at approved development sites, and claimed that “up to $5 billion in economic incentives, up to 30 years of property tax abatement, and no city income tax” would be available.

Plus, the application explained that Jersey City’s location and proximity to Hudson Yards offers “unmatched access and connectivity,” that the city offers a “safe, welcoming, exciting, and thriving community” with high quality of life, and that this is “the most culturally diverse and accepting city” in the United States.

The proposal offered “two prime locations” near the Hudson River waterfront: LeFrak’s 700 Washington Boulevard in Newport and Mack-Cali’s properties at Harborside. The overview stated that the Newport site, which included the northeast quadrant between Newport Green Park and Hoboken Terminal, could have been built to suit by 2020, while the six sites being offered at Harborside could have been built to suit within 24 to 36 months.

The Harborside sites included parts of existing buildings along with properties for new development such as the parking lot at 242 Hudson Street, the parking lot at 20 Christopher Columbus Drive, part of the Harborside Financial Center at 10 Christopher Columbus Drive, and the office building at 2 Montgomery Street.

The transportation section of the proposal mentioned that New York Waterway would have provided Amazon-only ferries along with “any level of customized services required by Amazon.”
